Methods of Researching Your Ancestry

Have you ever wondered where your family came from? Maybe you share a bloodline with royalty from hundreds of years ago that you never knew about. There are ways to find these things out; to follow the branches of your family tree and see where your ancestry leads.

Genealogy videos online can reveal numerous ways to go about delving into your family history and uncovering what lies beneath. The best way to start is by gathering all the information that you already have. Find any photographs, letters, medical and legal files, deeds to property, tax records and more that you or family members might have in their possession.

You can also check town halls and local libraries for records and search indexes and databases on the Internet. There are hundreds of sites dedicated to genealogy research. When you gather all of this, write it out. Write out everything you know and point out any holes you found.

Refer to the videos online for different ways to start exploring your family genealogy. There are many different methods. You may even be able to trace your heritage through DNA.

Whichever method you choose, the first step toward finding out what you do not know is to start with what you do know.
